Prospective mariner here trying to figure out how to nudge my way into the industry. From what I can tell, SIU is certainly the best publicized union out there, and their Unlicensed Apprentice program seems like a good way to start out, and from what I’m finding everywhere else it seem like one of the only ways. Does anyone know of other paths to entry? What other other unions are out there and how do they compare? Is union membership even worth it in this industry? Your time and effort is much apreciated. Thanks!
